I have been visiting Vegas about an average of once a year for 30 plus years. Not enough to be any kind of expert on Vegas, but enough so I get a regular periodic snapshot of the gradually changing landscape. And the change I sensed this year staying at The Encore was that for the first time I could remember, baby carriages were playing a major role in trying to navigate through the crowds. Knots of people at intersections of major aisles or near the guest room elevators have never been easy to work through, but this year they seemed to become impossibly dense. This was because for each crowded area there were usually 3 or 4 baby carriages being maneuvered around within the throngs of people, forcing more than the usual number of vacationers to stop dead in their tracks until they were sure they wouldn't collide with the babies. Many of the carriages were double-baby carriages! I was staying at the Encore from December 24-28, so maybe that was a factor, and maybe what I experienced was just my mistaken impression or an anomaly. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?
